      Description

      With the addition of FELIX-5207 (documented in http://www.eclipse.org/jetty/javadoc/9.4.7.v20170914/org/eclipse/jetty/server/ForwardedRequestCustomizer.html) and the SSL Filter (described in http://felix.apache.org/documentation/subprojects/apache-felix-http-service.html#ssl-filter-configuration-properties and http://felix.apache.org/documentation/subprojects/apache-felix-http-service.html#using-the-ssl-filter) it seems that there are two different mechanisms in place to actually achieve the same. Please clarify in the documentation how these two relate and which one to choose for which use case. Even the SSL filter allows to configure the headers since https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-4330.

      There is only the small line in the documentation:
      Note: instead of deploying the SSL filter bundle, you can also set the org.apache.felix.proxy.load.balancer.connection.enable property to true in order to achieve the same effect.
